* Required Field


Imaging design is a highly specialist arena where yield, area and performance are key commercial priorities. Pulsic’s physical design tools enable high-yield, fast-to-market designs that keep you at the forefront of your field.

UniPlan, UniPlace, UniRoute and UniEdit combine to provide powerful automatic and interactive routing, together with the detailed floor planning and placement capabilities to generate high yield, high performance designs for imaging applications.

Developed to boost yields in high volume production environments Unity gives you design-for-manufacture features that enable you to automate repetitive tasks, maximise productivity, and overcome footprint constraints to achieve the best possible yield results.

Flexible floorplanning

Use UniPlan to create highly flexible and arbitrary shaped floorplans, continuously reshaping and developing standard cell row regions to achieve optimum area efficiency for your design.

  • Standard cell rows can be horizontal, vertical, or both.
  • Image support floorplanning for wide aspect ratios plus arbitrary shape-based cell rows and design area.
  • Integrated floorplaning and routing enables instant decision-making.

Enhanced placement technology

As well as full timing-driven placement ― with automatic parasitic extraction ― enhanced placement technology contains specific features to accommodate the specialist needs of imaging design.

  • Multi-height cell support.
  • Optimised cluster placement.
  • Placement to pre-route for high performance.
  • Horizontal, vertical or mixed rows.

Precision specialist routing

Pulsic’s specialised UniRoute has been designed with logic for image core control and can provide control and restriction of specific routing layers, together with optimal linear channel trunk routing. Intelligently understood by the application, other tools comply with these special rules.

  • Support for advanced nm process nodes (optimum/minimum rules and wide wire/short edge rules) delivers improved yields.
  • Specific routing capability for designs with low numbers of routing layers.
  • Predictable straight ‘spine-style’ routing with intelligent shielding.
  • Automatic batch routing.

Optimised performance

Pulsic provides unique support throughout the design process. A unique shape-based ECO capability allows painless yield and design improvement and iteration.

  • Unlimited Undo and Redo facilities.
  • Changes are automatically fed into the routing process, using the underlying design database.
  • Constraints (width, layer, spacing, length, electrical constraint, shielding, matching, etc) can be applied in the schematic, passed to and adhered to in the design implementation.
